Abstract The Rotating Light Table (RLT) is a light-reflective device developed to measure the surface luster of fibers in various forms - as bundles containing many parallel fibers (e.g., in top form), as small groups of parallel fibers, or even as single fibers. Such fibers may be un-dyed (white/cream), dyed, or naturally colored. The device can compare the relative luster of fiber bundles before and after undergoing surface modification. Comparing the surface luster of cotton sliver before and after mercerization exemplifies the technique. Surface reflectance profiles from < 20 parallel-mounted human hairs orientated root-to-tip, and from single black or light-colored fibers, further exemplify the precision and sensitivity of the technique.
